Re: defaultSearchBase?


The system I am building is for an isp who want to have a single ldap server
for a number of customers each with different domain names.

I was hoping I could set the defaultsearchbase to '' and have the search
done on the complete database, as set up by multiple database definition
sections in slapd.conf.  Is that possible in some way?
